Entirely Is Point of Entry's 2nd Juvenile SW of the Week

09.01.2018 -

Augustin Stable's Entirely survived a roughouse trip to prevail in the $100,000 Sharp Susan S. on the undercard of Saturday's 2018 FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes program at Gulfstream Park.

The 2-year-old daughter of Point of Entry was checked in traffic by jockey Emisael Jaramillo for the third time leaving the backstretch before making a sweeping five-wide move on the turn to take the lead in the stretch. The Jonathan Thomas trainee drifted slightly nearly the finish while holding off a late bid by A Bit Special by a neck. Romero Ramsey Maragh, who rode the runner-up, claimed foul on the winner to no avail.



“It was eventful from start of finish. We had like four different trips by the time we got to the half-mile pole. Everybody was ping-ponging off each other. I'm just happy we came out on top,” Thomas said. “She's a nice filly. I thought she was traveling well in spots. Whenever she got into a rhythm, she got knocked off rhythm, so it's a credit to her that she got the job done.”

George Strawbridge Jr.'s homebred filly ran 7 ½ furlongs over a firm turf course in 1:31.39.

“It was important to me to get a stakes win for this filly. These owners are some of the greatest people the sport has,” Thomas said. “This is meaningful for me to win a stake for them.”

Entirely won at first asking in a June 1 maiden race at Gulfstream Park, where she rallied from far back to win the five-furlong turf race by 3 ¾ lengths. She subsequently joined Thomas' contingent at Saratoga before returning to action with a fourth-place finish over Woodbine's synthetic surface in the July 7 My Dear Stakes, in which two of the three horses that finished ahead of her were next-out winners.

The filly is the second juvenile stakes winner for Point of Entry in a week following the triumph by My Gal Betty in the August 25 Catch A Glimpse Stakes at Woodbine. Entirely and My Gal Betty are among Point of Entry's seven juvenile winners in 2018.
